This brings back memories of the most epic boss fight of my formative years. That’s right — the baddest motherfucker to ever grace the SNES, Kefka.
Of course the boss battle wasn’t quite so epic for everyone. Genji Glove and Offering… so cheap.
By the way, yes, I think of my formative years in terms of what video games I played — for instance, my Catholic confirmation happened on the weekend I had rented Megaman 3, and I have vivid memories of playing Secret of Mana while listening to the Good Time Oldies hour (my introduction to 60s and 70s music) on the radio. Knights in White Satin is in fact forever associated in my mind to leveling up my Glove weapon skills.
